What do you mean, she’s gone’?” 

Forensic psychologist Claire Markwood has answered her fair share of heart-stopping phone calls, but none quite as chilling as the one informing her that her sister, Darcy, is missing. Claire rushes to the butterfly sanctuary where Darcy has been working, prepared to do what she does best—work the clues. But Darcy, along with her car and some of the sanctuary’s rarest species of butterflies, has seemingly vanished without a trace.

Amid a flurry of mysterious leads and dead ends, Claire and her criminal lawyer husband, Nick, turn to friends and colleagues, desperate to tap every resource at their disposal. But the deeper they dig, the more unsettling the case becomes, dredging up old family secrets that shake the foundation of everything Claire thought to be true. And by the time this latest deadly threat is done with them, nothing will ever be the same.

Dark Storm is the 6th book in the South Shores series by Karen Harper and it's based around Forensic psychologist Claire Markwood and her family. Now, this is my first Karen Harper and South Shores book, and while I was very confused and disturbed in places (that flipping doll for one!), I quickly carried on and realized that Claire Markwood is to Naples, as Jessica Fletcher is to Cabot Cove! 

Overall I found Dark Storm quite a startling read, that is well written and is something you would expect to see on Criminal Minds! When it came to the characters I wouldn't really figure out who the bad guy and good guys were straight off the bat, the storyline kept me guessing and I could have never have predicted the conclusion! But I feel that it’s a series I would like to read from the beginning. 

I give Dark Storm 4 stars!
